It sounds like whoever packaged your db4 or db42 RPMs didn't do it quite
right. It appears to your OS that these are two completely unrelated
packages that are trying to step on each others' files, instead of one
package being an upgrade to the other. Probably has to do with the fact
that the second one is named "db42" instead of "db4-4.2.something".
Your have several options at this point:
1. Do an "rpm --erase --nodeps" on the existing db4 package. The
--nodeps means go ahead even if you're breaking dependencies. Yes, a lot
of stuff depends on the package, but you're about to install the newer
package so (hopefully) everything should be OK. Make a note of the
dependencies, and if any of them are broken afterwards, go back to the
2. Do an "rpm -i --nodeps" on the Subversion RPM. Using --nodeps on an
install means don't check to make sure all dependencies are resolved.
Even though the RPM system thinks it is missing stuff, db 4.1 is there
so you should be OK.
3. Build the Subversion RPM from the source RPM. My FC1 box currently
has subversion-1.0.4 installed which I got from the DAG repository at
http://dag.wieers.com/apt/ . The DAG repository always has more
up-to-date packages than the official channels. I highly recommend
adding it to your up2date configuration; see the "Getting Started" link
at the URL above. In the case of Subversion, I built it from the source
RPM (they currently have 1.0.5; I just haven't gotten around to
installing yet, but since I don't use svnserve it's not as big a deal).
You can get the source RPM from them at
subversion-1.0.5-1.test.src.rpm). Building source RPMs lets you
fine-tune some things like dependencies but still lets you have the
convenience of using the RPM system. I am using Subversion-1.0.4 with
the "official" db4-4.1.25 FC1 package.
